Are you looking to build an acoustic guitar in the style of a Martin Dreadnaught? Building this style may be easier than you think. Making a guitar with this template set based on the famous D28 will certainly be a lot easier and more accurate.

The full set includes the following individual items:

  • Soundboard/Back Template
  • Headstock - 2 options
  • Fretboard/Neck
  • Neck Side Profile
  • Bridge
  • Brace Scallop Profiles for X-Brace and Tone Bars

The soundboard/back template provides for accurate outline and brace layout for the soundboard and back.  It also includes the locations of the scallop peaks in the scalloped braces. The separate brace scallop profile templates provide typical scallop profiles for the X-brace and the Tone bars.

The fretboard/neck template provides plan dimension of the fretboard and neck and includes pinholes to facilitate the accurate location of fret markers on both the front of the fretboard and also the side dots. 

We have two Martin-style headstock options.  The traditional Martin headstock with sharp corners and straight taper to the neck or a more modern version with rounded corners and curved taper to the neck.  Both to fit a 44.5mm nut width.  Also, check out the many other headstock options available in our Acoustic Headstock Collection

Templates included in the Build Set:

  • Soundboard/Back Template
  • Headstock - tell which one you want when you order
  • Fretboard/Neck
  • Neck Side Profile
  • Brace Scallop Profiles for X-Brace and Tone Bars

These templates, like all our layout templates, are made of 3mm clear acrylic, precision laser cut, etch lines, and keyholes for the accurate layout of your build. The etched lines are placed on the surface closet to the guitar to ensure the most accurate transfer of measurements.

Note: The dimensions of templates on this site are often created for accuracy based on original models however this is not the case in some templates and therefore we do not guarantee these templates to work with original parts. We also chose to design elements to be compatible across multiple models which means not all parts are the exact dimensions as the original guitar the templates were based on.
